Last Saturday we showed you the nation's capital city Canbera. Click here if you missed that post. Today we check out some of the quaint small towns and buildings.
Australia is dotted with small towns and communities. Many have been there over 100 years and have some fascinating old buildings in the main street. Often we drive right by them as we go from one place or another but each has its own story. Thankfully many of them are still in good repair and are being well preserved for future generations.
What I Loved: The old buildings in the small towns all have a great history and have a definite Australian feel to them. They are different to the buildings in small towns in other parts of the world and I love them for their uniqueness. Since I moved away these old buildings are much more special and fascinating to me.
This small town of Morpeth is a popular destination and is just 2 hours north of Sydney.
Its main street is lined with old buildings and has many shops and eateries.
Most small towns have at least one pub that offers accommodations like this one in Manilla.
This building has seen better days.
Many small towns have main streets that look similar to this.
Even the Post Office in Bingara has a historical feel in many small towns.
The town hall in Bingara has a lovely historical feel to it as well.
Many of the pubs in small towns also offer meals and they are a good way to get a reasonably priced and filling meal.
The architecture on some of these buildings are wonderful. This old theatre has been restored and being used for performing arts, as a cinema and other functions.
